    Allen, I think that it is you who might have been clobbered. Have a look at
    this virus documentation,
    http://www.europe.f-secure.com/v-descs/finnpoly.shtml, also known as Ebola.
    Today, 04/04, is one of it's trigger dates.
    
    Tom.

    Subject: Heavens Above hacked
    
    
    Just tried to go to Heavens Above, got the following:
    
    "HACKED by EBOLA - EBOLA division from CZECH republic - - for Veronica: I
    LOVE YOU - - for Veronica: I LOVE YOU -"
    
    Does anybody know if this presents a danger to the user (e.g., me)?  Any
    precautions to be taken other than running antivirus programs?
